Method 1: Calculating Cell Values Using the Tables CollectionThis example calculates the values of two cells from different tables. The macro obtains the value of cell A1 in table 1 and the value of cell A1 in table 2. It then totals the values and inserts the result in cell A2 of table 2.
To run this example, first insert two tables with a minimum of two rows and one column each into an empty document. Type a numerical value into cell A1 of each table.
NOTE: With this code, the numbers format can only accept decimal points. Commas cause numbers to be truncated; the value 12,000 is interpreted as 12 by the macro.
Method 2: Calculating Cell Values Using Bookmarks and the Formula MethodThis Formula method macro example sums cell A1 in table 1, cell A1 in table 2, and cell A1 in table 3, and inserts the Formula field and result into table 3, cell A2.
For more information about the Formula method, click the Office Assistant while in the Visual Basic Editor, type "Formula Method," click Search, and then click to view "Formula Method."
